  • Tice, Smith, Emery -- who gets the blame for this tackle mess?

    Tice, Smith, Emery -- who gets the blame for this tackle mess?
    The Bears' actual problem at offensive left tackle is protecting Jay Cutler. The bigger problem might be why the choice comes down to J’Marcus Webb and Chris Williams. Is this the best the Bears could find? Is this the Bears’ idea of...
  • Bears expect major upgrade from Marshall

    Bears expect major upgrade from Marshall
    Not long after the Bears acquired Jay Cutler three years ago, he began lobbying the front office for a wide receiver. Text messages were sent. Cutler wanted help. Maybe even a go-up-and-get-it guy. Help arrived Tuesday when the team kicked off the start...
  • Bears owe Goodell

    Roger Goodell just gave the Bears a season. No, the NFL Commissioner didn’t send out a press release. And no, he did not appear on NFL Network to explain how and why. But when Lord Roger Voldemort sent his Death Eaters to New Orleans in the wake of...
  • A vote for giving the Bears more help

    The NFL’s competition committee had an idea that the Bears should like but don’t. The committee recommended increasing offseason rosters from 80 players to 90 as a way of developing more talent. Nothing wrong with that, right? A chance to...
  • Just when the Bears looked stable along the offensive line . . .

    Just when the Bears looked stable along the offensive line . . .
    The Bears point out that this season’s 4-3 record matches last season’s mark at the open week. The implication is they won five in a row and seven of their last nine to win the NFC North last season and feel they can do something like that...
  • Ravens offensive line erases doubts while learning new scheme

    Ravens offensive line erases doubts while learning new scheme
    As remarkable as the demolition of Pittsburgh's proud defense was, the Ravens' offensive success on opening day was noteworthy for another reason: It marked the debut of their new zone blocking scheme. What had the potential to be a major issue early for...
  • Take that, Megatron

    Take that, Megatron
    Charles Tillman stepped in front of yet another horrible pass by Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford, grabbed the ball and raced 45 yards. See ya. Later. Ballgame, even though almost half the ballgame remained. Tillman’s score marked the Bears&...
  • Quick someone tell Martz to Hanie-proof the Bears

    I love the job Mike Tice has done --- has usually done --- but the offensive line coach's blocking schemes and players are absolutely useless against 3-4 schemes. Or if it's not the schemes, then it's the way they're taught because the linemen don't...
  • Wait, I think the Bears just wasted another timeout

    Wait, I think the Bears just wasted another timeout
    I think I know why the Chicago Bears blow so many timeouts on offense: Jay Cutler has to get the play from the guy on the sideline, but first, the guy on the sideline has to get it from Mike Martz in the booth, but before that, Martz has to get it from...
  • Martz resigns as Bears' offensive coordinator

    Martz resigns as Bears' offensive coordinator
    General manager Jerry Angelo isn’t the only prominent Chicago Bears figure who won’t return in 2012. Also out is offensive coordinator Mike Martz, who resigned Tuesday morning after a meeting with coach Lovie Smith.   A source told the...
  • Bears analysis: Still searching for a 1,000-yard receiver

    Bears analysis: Still searching for a 1,000-yard receiver
    5th in a 10-part series How dysfunctional are the Chicago Bears at wide receiver? In two seasons under pass-happy Mike Martz, they couldn’t come up with a 1,000-yard receiver. If that’s not a sign something is wrong, it ought to be. Martz,...
